"fiucltonics, ” published by the *''icdruW'-tti.j.r, Publishing 
Co.np&ny, 330 tvest 42nd btreet, Mtw York Ctty> tAhvisod 
the subject contacted hia inasmuch as he is the Chairman 
oi the "ameriedn kucleaf oociety" und editor of the 
’’Kucltonics*’ magazine, 

LUWTZ stated that the “anerican Nuclear society” 
Organizing Committee, consists of twenty eight american 
atomic scientists of some notoriety and himself, i^UiAWLLL, 
according to LCNTZ, publishes the ■’ Journal of Nuclear 
jtihcrgy, ” a high level, technical magazine put out quarterly 
, by yukXWiibL’S company, the Pergomon Press. LlNTl advised 
that .‘liiXWBLL is anxious to start an A.merican atomic energy 
magazine, the reason being it would help him out in his 
book publishing operation through good contacts. I-aOCWEnL 
is seeking a mechanism to start this magazine, according 
to LUNTZ, and he has figured that the- best way would be 
through the ‘’^American Nuclear bocioty." 

ikccording to LCKT2, A'!UiXWELL wants to make an 
offer to tnc ‘Vmierican Nuclear Society” for the publica- 
tion of the Amierican atomic energy magazine. LCNlZ con- 
tinued to relate that i-w-AWEhL has indicated he spoke to 
hINN, tiaP'STEB, VON I'nOmPSuK, hnd .vvEINBERG, all 

atomic scientists and directors of nhC establishments, 

^*ccording to LCNTZ, j-u^XviEbL' S plan is to have 
2 INN or mkPSTED to be editor in Chief of the ^American 
atomic energy magazine and planned that tne directors of 
the ,.*0 National laboratories would be aaitors, x'-wKWElL 
would set up a fifteen mun Editorial Board of Aimerioan 
scientists, ’Ihe Editors woulaaacouKge their assistants and 
other scientists to submit technictl articles on atomic 
energy to the magazine. No renumeration would be involved 
in the submission of these articles, and 
company would cover the entire costs on a monthly basis. 



LUNTZ advised that in arrangtinents oi’ this type 
there ere usually financial losses, m»X’wELL is willing to 
sustain losses in order to make chnteots hnd see that the 
name of his corapary becc;naes better ’ci<»wn and established in 
the United States. LUKTZ added tbs'*/ in addition, the 
Editors would come across people who are preparing book 
manuscripts and would refer them ^to jyuXbELL ' S company, the 
Pergamon Press, 

LUHXZ related that should the Society accept 
DitiXWELL'S offer, it would only be on condition tact the 
Society would have coiaplece control an^ taut only un- 
classified information would pass through to publication, 
he pointed out that a''u»aIvEEX' would have control of tno 
contacted scientists if the arrangeitient was conaucted on 
an independent basis. 

LUNTZ believed that all of the members of the 
"ivmerican IJuclear Society” hv^vt nhC clearance with the 
exception of nimself. «e indicated that the ”<»mericcn 
hucleer Society” probably woula not accept ^^;*XwELL•S 
offer. LUNTZ learned that tne Perga.non Press, Vu.XinEeli’S 
company, is starting a new magazine in 19i>5 covering a 
certain portion of the nuclaar field. Ihe raegazine is 
entitled “The uournal of Inorganic and i«uclcar Chemistry,” 
He is aware that CHiWtLES CLiRGLEL, a noted nuclear pnysicist, 
is preparing a technical paper for the Pergamon Press, 

LUNTZ advised that without knowing anything 
further about j'^ix^XWELL, his proposals and statements indicate 
nothing of a suspicious or ulterior nature* The fact that 
he is willing to sustain losses on tne proposed ^rnitrican 
nuclear magazine for contacts and advertising is not "out 
of line,” according to LUNTZ, nc stated that to his know- 
ledge it would be the first American magazine in tne 
nuclear or any other field published by a British publish- 
ing company, LUNTZ advised that ;>i.,Xk£LL had an appointment 
at 400 p.m. the seme day with LUNTZ, 

On November 1, 1954; oEkOj.'lL LUNTZ advised that 
the subject kept an appointment at his office at 400 p.m, j 
October 29, 19b4; regarding the magazine proposal, The 




subject, according to LbNTZ, appeared anxious to set up the 
inagazine as quickly as possible, related that he 

inlonned ruiXin/EuIi that the entire proposal v^ould "be discussed 
at the "araexican luclcar dojiety ' axoc’itive oiee'-ing in 
hovcAnoer, that ir, would be decided upon at tne 

doard oi' directors iiieeting oi tno 'atceo. lean nuclear oociety**

"December*, 19i>3^ in anticipation of a possible change this 
year in the Atomic Energy Act of 194^ that wcal«a make such 
a society feasible for the first tirae, I'he new legislation, 
the Atomic Energy Act of 1954> passed by Congress and signed 
into law by President Eisenhower in late bummer, bore out 
the hopes of the group, 

”A major objective of the new law is ’a program 
for the dissemination of unclassified technical information. . 
to encourage scientific and industrial progress. ‘ To help 

A 

make this possible, the Atomic Energy Comcaission has been 
given tne responsibility of taking the initiative in set- 
ting up an aggressive declassification program. The 
organizers of SNSE (Society of Auclear Scientists and Engi- 
neers) expect tnat their new society will serve as a plat- 
form for the initial full public discussion of atomic energy 
technological problems. • 

*^ Conference to be aeld in June 

"SiJSE has announced that it will hold its first 
technical conference vune 27-29 on the campus of Pennsyl- 
vania State University, State College, Pa, The location 
for the meeting was selected partially because of Penn

jects of interest to the membership will include uses of 
radioisotopes in science and industry, eilects of radiation 
on materials, radiation-steriliaation of foods, etc. 
?‘ Organisatlo n jincouraged by Industrial Concerns 

’^.Ithough memotrship in the Society is open only 
to individual scientists and engineers, nuifierous corpora- . 
tions active in atomic energy work have supported the effort 
to form such a group. Included among them are American das

STAT£i''ihNT Of t{i-Pi<£S£.i4THTIV£ COL£> 

JOINT COJia-ilTTlLL ON iiTOi'^iIC EW^rtGY 


"ny congratulctions to the i^ociety or Nucltur 
Scientists end iingineers on the occasion oi' its founaing. 

It greatly pleases me that the leaders of xi.raericen nuclear 
science and technology have joined together to form a pro- 
fessional society which can do much to advance beneficent 
uses of the atom. 

"I deem it particularly fortunate that this new 
society is being founded so soon after the passage of the 
Atomic nnergy Act of 1954 which see-ks to encourage -- both 
witnin our own country and with friendly nations abroad — 
the dissemiiuvtion and exchange of unclassified scientific and 
technical information and thereby to promote scientific and 
industrial progress and public understanding. Those of us 
serving in official capacities in our national stomic energy 
program are keenly aware of how much nonrgovernmental bodies 
-- such as this new society — can contribute to these 
objectives, 

”lt is my fervent nope c,ind deep conviction that the 
founding of the SNbE will underscore our nation’s resolve to 
do everything in its power to further peace-time applications 
of the atom, and to share these benefits with decent people 
everywhere

if the latter would be willing to be one of the Editors of 
such a publication. 

V/EIN3EHG informed the subject that he would be 
interested, but that he would be more interested in being 
one of the Editors of the ’’Journal" as it stands at the 
present time. WEINBERG informed Mi^XWELL that he thought 
possibly it would be better to have the present "Journal" 
in the status of more of an international publication 
rather than to have an ^^merican edition and perhaps other 
editions of the "Journal." WEINBERG stated a‘'i;iXWEEL men- 
tioned that some people had opposed such a proposal,

rRUC- 

DETAILS ; AT WESTON. CCWNECTICUT 

AVERY JENNINGS WARNER was reinterviewed at her residence on Panton 
Hill Road, Weston, Connecticut, on January 10, 1955 writer* 

She furnished the following information: 

ASSOCIATION WITH CAPTAIN MAXWELL : 

» , 
Mrs* WARNER advised that her first meeting with Captain MAXWELL was 
in Atlanta late in August, 1953* She was introduced by CHARLES 
GILSTEN , whom she identified in her previous interview. This in- 
troduction was made at the apartment of Mr. DAVID KOPLIN in the 
Howell House in Atlanta, KOPLIN was a close friend of CHARLES GILSTEN 
/’"'and he arranged a breakfast which was attended by MAXWELL, the purpose 
/-of which was to get various people together who were interested in a 
pre-fabricated housing venture, idiich she described in her earlier 
interview. She believes that KOPLIN no orlo-p nr snhserwup i nt

association with MAXWELL, merely acting as host on this occasion, 
on behalf of his friend, GILSTEH* 

As previously described, the meeting between her and MAXWELL was 
for the purpose of discussing the decoration of the pre-fabrlcated 
housing, in which project the subject and GILSTEN were associated* 
KOPLIN, GILSTEN, MAXWELL and MAXWELL'S associate, whom she Identified 
as ”Mr* WALLER STEIN ** , were present* 

MAXWELL and "WALLERSTBIH " left Atlanta that evening. The next time 
she saw MAXWELL was in Hew York on Columbus Day, October 12, 1953* 

She visited an apartment located over “British bookstore", which 
MAXWELL was occupying at that time. This visit was for the purpose 
of suggesting decorating Ideas which MAXWELL was considering* 

The next time she saw MAXWELL was late in October, 1953 when he 
returned to Atlanta* On this occasion papers were signed creating 
the corporation which was to construct and sell the pre-fabricated 
houses* However, as described in the earlier Interview, one of the 
principals in this venture, a Mr* STOKES, died the same day the papers 
were signed, and this fact tied the deal up. MAXWELL stayed in 
Atlanta about a week or ten days for the purpose of attempting to 
get other real estate operators into the ventxire to replace STOKES* 

One such person was introduced to MAXWELL by Mrs* WARNER* She 
identified him as JERRY CORLEY, with whom she stated she had been 
keeping company at that time* CORLEY, however, told her tha,t he 
had gotten a credit report of some' kind on MAXWELL and that he did 
not like it* She also knew that he had had some rather heated 
discussions with MAXWELL on the American system of government verses 
the British system of government* One of the issues discussed was 
socialized medicine, as practiced In England, which MAXWELL defended 
end which CORLEY criticized* 

As far as Mrs* WARNER could recall, MAXWELL never returned to Atlanta 
after his departure from that city early in November, 1953* She 
could recall only those persons referred to above as having known 
MAXWELL, with only one exception. Mrs. WARNER said MARY JANE MILLER, 
who now lives at 1932 N*E* 7th Street, Miami, was present during 
every meeting which she had with MAXWELL, but would not know anything 
about him that she, Mrs. WARNER, didn't know*

The next and final meeting vith MAXWELL was in Miami in March, 

1954- • She had a phone call from MAXWELL and he said he wanted 
to talk with GILSTEN and herself in Miami concerning the pre-fab 
deal« She went to Miami under the impression that OILSTEN would 
also be there* Upon arriving, she registered at the Sans Souci 
Hotel, vhere MAXWELL was also registered. Evidently MAXWELL did 
not get in touch with OILSTEN since he did not put in an appearance* 
She arrived on Saturday morning and MAXWELL left on the following 
Monday morning* _ 

Mrs* WARNER stated that she stayed on for the balance of the week* 
During the weekend howev^, she decided that nothing was going to 
come of the pre -fabricate housing venture and she made up her mind 
to drop It and look around '^or something else* 

This was the last time she saw MAXWELL and except for one instance, 
the last she has heard concerning him* After she moved to Now York 
from Atlanta in 195U> she .recelye^d a call from OILSTEN, who Indicated 
that MAXWELL was in some sort of 'trouble with the directors of 
"WALLERSTEIN’S” company concerning his use of company funds for hia 
expenses* 

The only persons associated with the subject at Atlanta, Miami, or 
New York, known to this source, have been identified in the foregoing 
she stated* 

SUBJECT »S ALLEGED ASSOCIATION 
WITH intelligence: 


Mrs* WARNER stated she could not give exact quotations, but on each 
, of her several meetings with the subject he .Indicated by things he 
J''^aid^that he had ^connect ions with the British -Government” . She 
stated he always used the title "CAPTAIN I.R* MAXWELL”* He told her 
in Atlanta that he had served JLn British Intelligence in World, War 
II, and he had what he described as two bullet wounds near the chin- 
jf lineion the right 'side of his’ face, and' neckl^^hece he was supposed 
to h^ve been shot* He also told her, during one of their talks ^ that 
on one occasion ho was scheduled to be shoti,';by the Yugoslavs or. one 
n 'of the other Balkan governments* «' 

I * ^ ‘ ' 

In addition, as she previously indicated, MAXWELL was very proud and 
given to displaying his bulky passport* She described it as about the 
size of a “five year diary”* In it he claimed to have visas and 
stamps from practically every country in the world, including Russia*

During the negotiations In Atlanta concerning the pre-fab housing 
venture, the deal was tied up for several weeks awaiting MAXWEDD^s 
return to that city to sign papers* Vhen ho arrived in Atlanta 
it was with the explanation that he had been to Russia *'for the 
British Government”. He discussed what he had seen in Russia with 
her* In view of his claims to have served in British Intelligence 
during World War II, and his extensive travels since World War U, 
particularly his travel to the Soviet Union, Mrs* WARNER' stated she 
was under the impression that he had current Intelligence connections 
with the British Government or at least tried to create that im- 
pression upon his associates* He did not however, say that this was 
the case in so many words and she stated she would not expect him 
to do so if it were the case.^ 

REt KURT WALLERSTEINER ' 

MRS. WARNER stated she meli an individual with MAXWELL, whose name 
she recalled as ”Mr. WALLERSTBIN”. She met him at the breakfast 
at KOPLIH's apartment In Atlanta at the sasM time she met MAXWELL* 

She understood that MAXWELL was managing ”WALLERSTEIH <S” affairs* 

This was the only time she met "WALLER STB IN”* She understood he 
was an Austrian, who had been engaged, in the chemical business and 
who had been forced into barter deals in payment for chemical pro- 
ducts traded on the foreign market* She indicated in the earlier 
interview this was how "WALLER STBIH " and MAXWELT ,came into possession 
of the pre-fab housing as she understood it* He and MAXWELL also 
indicated that they had a couple of boatloads of cement to sell, 
a quantity of silk which she thought might have been from China or 
Japan, and a quantity of baby bottles* She stated she knew nothing 
of any of these transactions aside from the affairs involving the 
pre-fabricatod housing venture described above*

IAN ROBERT MAXWELL 



SUB JECT: 


IAN ROBERT MAXWELL 


According to a reliable informant the 


correct names of the Subject of this enquiry 
are IAN ROBERT MAX V/ EEL and his former 
names were LODVIK KOCH. He was born 
in Caechoelovakia on 10th Jtme 1923. His 
date of birth at times has been given as 10th 
June 1921 but this is believed to be incorrect. 

His place of birth in Czechoslovakia has been 
described as Seto, Slotina and Slatinskdore. 

This is believed to be the same place but as 
described in different languages, viz. Serbian. 
Polish and Russian. 

Subject arrived in the United Kingdom from 
France in July 1940 with members of the Czecho- 
slovakia Armed Forces. This was the time of 
the fall of France and when the Allied Forces 
were evacuated from France. He was a private 
in the Czecho 8 lov 2 ikian Army at that time , With 
other foreign sections of the Armed Forces he 
was accomodated at a hostel for a time, and in 


October 1940 he and his comrades were in- 


corporated into the Pioneer Corps of the British 
Army. Subject was later transferred from the 
Pioneer Corps to the Intelligence Corps of the 
British Army and served in that unit until the 
end of the war. He attained the rank of Captain 
in the British Army and was awarded the Mil- 
itary Cross which is a decoration for outstand- 
ing military service. 

During his service with the British Army 
Subject was granted British nationality. Subject 
did not acquire British nationality by the normal 
process of naturalisation but by virtue of his 
rank and duties with the Intelligence Corps, and 
this was not an uncommon procedure in such 
cases during the war years. At the time he ac- 
quired British nationality be changed his name 
to the one by which he is now known and this 
was a normal procedure also at this time. 

The normal naturalization procedure was not 
complied with and it would therefore be difficult 
to obtain precise details, British nationality 
was granted to such persons during the war 
years to protect them and to give them status. 


3 


Subject is therefore regarded as a naturalized 
British subject at the present time and Is in 
possession of a British passport which, incident^ 
ally, gives his date of birth as 10 June 1923, 
Subject is and has been connected with the 
under mentioned companies, details from 
the official records of which are as follows:

In the High Court of Justice, Chancery 
Division. Companies Court (No. 00304 of 1935) 
ou Monday 2nd May 1955, before Mr. Justice 
Roxburgh, upon the Petition of MacMillian 
fii Co. Registered Office St. Martins Street, 

City of London, a Court Order was made for 
the Company to be Wound Up, 

Enquiries were made in commercial sources and in 

particular through informants in the publishing trade, 

and according to informants Subject is not considered 

to have a good business reputation, or to be a man of 

t 

high integrity. 

At the time of the liquidation Proceedings in 
respect of SIMPKIN MARSHALE LTD. , 242 Marylebone 
Road, N, W.l., Subject was strongly suspected of 


10 . 


4 -.- 








having unlawfully removad, or caused to be 
removed, from that Company’s premises, con- 
fidential documents, including approximately 
Z, 500 Adrema Addressing Machine plates, con- 
taining the names and addresses of export 
customers, which formed part of the assets of 
the liquidated Company, for use in his own 
Company, via. 1. R. MAXWEL.I, & CO, LTD. » 

4/5 Fitaroy Square, W.l, The last mentioned 

Company was engaged almost exclusively in the 

export market of the bookselling trade. Subject 

was interrogated by the Official Receiver with 

regard to this matter, and was the subject of 

other official enquiries at the time, vie. June 1955, 

but no action was taken. Subject was formerly 

Managing Director and Chairman of SIlvtPKlN MARSHALL 

LTD. MR, C. T. CLARKE, Secretary of I. R. MAXWELL 

LTD. was suspected of being associated with Subject 

in connection with this matter. 

Informants in commercial sources stated that 
at the end of Subject's service in the British Army 
during World War U, he was engaged upon propaganda 
2U»d/ or publicity assignments in Berlin, and that was 


> - 


11 . 


the beginning of his career in the bookselling and 
publishing business. 

vSubject was at one time closely associated 
with ’s^lLUAM KURT SAMUEL VVALLERSTEINER 
(otherwise known as WIX^LLAM KURT WALLER), but 
following a financial disagreement, they are not now 
closely associated. WALLERSTEINER is a Director 
of the Anglo Commercial Bank, The Watford Chemical 
Co. Ltd. and other Companies, and is regarded 
as a man of substance and influence. However, he 
does not possess a good reputation and is suspected ^ 
of being involved in dubious financial transactions. 

He is suspected of being associated with certain 
irregular business transactions with countries ^ 
under Soviet domination which were the subject 
of criminal proceedings at the Central Criminal 
Court, Old Bailey, in 1955. It is suspected that 
he financed these transactions and his name was 
associated with the case, but he was not involved. 

According to informants, Subject is stated to 
have been associated with persons of doubtful busi* 
ness integrity and doubtful business transactions 
and is described by our informants as ruthless and 
unscrupulous. Subject is regarded by Informants 
as being financially stable. 



12 


According to confidential informants. Subject 
ie at the present time resident at 'Broomfield', 

Elsher Park Avenue, Esher, Surrey. The Reg-- 
later of Electors records the occupants of that 
address as I, R, MAXWELL and ELIZABETH J. 
MAXWELL. Also recorded in this Register is 
ALICE M, SLOANE, who is probably a domestic 
employee. 

Enquiries have been conducted at Esher, Surrey, 
and according to informants. Subject resides at 
the address given with his wife and their seven 
children. He is stated to have been resident at 
this address for the past three years. The house 
ie a large one, standing in its own grounds, with 
a swimming pool. Three foreign domestic ser- 
vants are stated to be employed at the house. 

Local informants describe Subject and his wife 
as respectable and of good financial position. 

Nothing was known to the detriment of Subject in 
local official sources. 

During the course of these enquiries a MRS, CARR, 
wife of the Headmaster of the school at which Sub- 


ject's children attend was interviewed, MRS. CARR 
stated that Subject acquired control by some means 
of SIMPKIN MARSHAi.1. LTD. after World War U, 
and this Company was subsequently liquidated with 
considerable losses to the Company's creditors and 
shareholders. MRS, CARR appeared to take the view 
that Subject gained by the Company's liquidation and 
stated that Subject was connected with a number of 
other businesses and deals of a dubious nature. She 
stated that Subject was a Czechoslovakian and was 
presumed to have changed his name by Deed Poll 
and not by naturalization. She stated that Subject's 
wife was of French nationality, and was a likeable 
person of genuine character. She stated that although 
Subject appears to have a good character his true 
character was not generally known as he confines 
himeelf to his own circle of business and personal 
associates. 

MRS. CARR further stated that Subject has not 
been known to give expression to any political 

views and takes no part in local affairs. She des- | 

\ 

i 

crlbed Subject as being "very rich" and stated that 

I 

he spent a good deal of time abroad, particvdarly j 
in Russia and Iron Curtain countries. A number 
of foreign persons visit Subject at his address 


14 


from time to time. 

MRS. CARR clearl/ diatruste and dislikes 
Subject, and stated that she considered him to 
be an opportunist who had made a considerable 
amount of money from unknown sources. She 
stated that Subject's business and personal life 
was obscure. 

Enquiries were ctmducted in the vicinity of 
16 Addison Crescent. West Kensington. W. S. but 
no further useful information was obtained. This 
address consists of three self-contained flats. 

Nothing was known to the detriment of Subject 
in local official sources. 

Through confidential and reliable official 
sources amd according to informants. Subject's 
movements and activities were the subject of 
investigation by British Security Authorities from 
1945 until 1954. Subject travelled extensively during 
this period and made frequent visits to Iron Curtain 
countries. Although information is that Subject is 
no longer the subject of investigation by British 
Security Authorities, his movements to and from 
Iron Curtain countries continued to be noted, and it | 
is understood that he visited Moscow as recently as | 


15 . 


April 1956. Subjects visits to Iron Curtain 

countries are alleged to be in connection with 

his bookselling and publishing business, and 

according to informants, hia visit to Moscow 

in April 1956 was for business purposes on 

behalf of his Company, I, R. MAXWELL. & CO, LTD. 

According to informants. Subject has been known 
to make use of the alias LESLIE DCT MAURIER. 

According to reliable and corfidentiai sources 
it was ascertained that Subject has frequently 
ventilated his opinions in letters to the press with 
regard to establishing and developing cultural 
relations with Russia and Iron Curtain countries, j 
of which he appears to bo strongly in favour. In 
a letter which Subject wrote to the editor of "The 
Times’’, and which appeared In the columns of 
that newspaper on 2nd February 1954, Subject 
advocated that books on cultural, technical and 
scientific subjects shotdd be sent to Russia and 
Iron Curtain countries. According to our informants. 
Subject has for many years privately and publicly 
in the press, agitated on this subject. Informants 


16 . 


state that Subject's commercial interest in the 
bookselling and publishing business might ac-' 
count for, in part, his agitation to develop an 
export trade in books on cultural and scientific 
subjects in Russia and Iron Curtain coxintries, 
and this would undoubtedly be very profitable 
to Subject in the commercial sense, but it 
is not considered that Subject's interest is solely 
commercial and it is not believed that he would 
go to such lengths ae apparently he has done, 
uxilese he were activated by personal, or more 
probably political, motives. It is understood that 
Subject's letter which appeared in 'The Times ’ 
newspaper in February 1954, is typical of the 
letters which he has written to the press on this 
subject since the end of World War il. The clip- 
ping from "The New York Times" of February 2, 
1954 is attached as Exhibit No . I. 

According to reliable and confidential infor- 
mants, a man named KAPEAN, who was formerly 
connected with SIMP KIN MARSHALL. LTD. , is 
understood to be associated with Subject in the

above connection, but to date no reliable infor- 
mation with regard to KAPLAN has been obtained. 

Iniormants advised that Subject was present 
at a meeting of journalists and writers in February 
1954, during the course of which the conversation 
turned to politics, and Subject became heatedly 
involved in this argument, apparently in favour 
of Communist political principles. Subject is 
stated to have become drunk during this discussion j 

I 

and to have produced a Communist Party member- } 

I 

ship card, which appeared to those present to be 
a valid one, MISS -R.EBECCA WEST, the well known 
authoress, was stated to be present at this dis- 
cussion. 

According to informants. Subject is not a known 
member of the Communist Party in the United 
Kingdom, but considering his frequent visits to 
Russia and Iron Curtain countries, he might con- 
ceivably have become a member of the Communist 
Party in any of these countries. 

According to informants, Subject is undoubtedly 
sympathetic to Communist Party aims and prin- 
ciples, and has been suspected by the Security 


Authorities for a number of years of Communist 
Activities. 

In the above connection it is* of course, ; 
possible that Subject's previous IntoUigence 
activities with the Allied Forces during World 
W^r 11, plus his published statements and visits 
to the Iron Curtain countries, caused the Security 
Authorities to investigate his activities, and that, 
although sympathetic to Communist political 
aims, he is not engaged in Communist activity. 

According to informants, Subject has not 
been convicted of any criminal offence, and not 
at any time the subject of official enquiry ex- 
cepting for an occasion in November 1942 when 
he came under official notice for being in possession 
of a Caecho Slovakian Army Officer's uniform 
without authority. No action was taken against 
Subject In connection with this matter, although 
it was regarded seriously at the time. It is 
possible that Subject had this uniform in his 
possession for the purposes of his Intelligence 
duties and this was the reason no official action 


was tadeen. 



19 


Subject's wife is EI.IZABETH JENNY JEAN 
and she was born in Paris on the lith March 1921. 
Nothing is known to her detriment. 

According to confidential and reliable sources, 
Subject in 1954 was said to have obtained financial 
backing for his business from HAMBRO'S BANK, 
City of London, but to date no reliable information 
has been obtained to substantiate this. 


SOVIET CONCESSIONS ON 
BOOKS 


PROSPECTS FOR BRISKER 
TRADE WITH BRITAIN 

Anglo-Soviet trade in books promises to 
become brisker. That is the impression with 
which CAPTAIN I. R. MAKWELE, chairman 
and managing director of Simpkin Marshall, Etd, , 
the publishing wholesalers, has returned from 
a 10-day visit to Moscow. 

Captain Maxwell, who was a forerunner 
of the trade mission from Britain now in Russia, 
had what he regards as some amicably co- 
operative discussions with the chairman of 
Mezinarodnaja Kniga, the Government agency 
for the import and export of literature. One 
of the main subjects was copyright. Captain 
Maxwell produced a circular sent to all insti- 
tutes and chemists in Russia asking them to 
buy a Russian photo-offset edition of the 
"Dictionary of Organic Compounds", and he 
asked the Russians, as a gesture of good will, 
to buy the original British edition published by 
Eyre and Spottiswoode, and also the British 
edition of Grove's "Dictionary of Music ' 
(Macmillian). The Russians agreed. 

With that ground won. Captain Maxwell 
moved on to the general question of copyright. 
Here, the Russians stated that some British 
publishers reprint Russian books without 
seeking consent. Captain Maxwell pointed 
out, however, that if the Soviet Union signed 
the Berne convention on copyright there could 
be no "pirating, ' and Russia would benefit, 
particularly in music rights. 


2 


■'If the international Publishers' Asso* 
ciation and Government authorities take this 
matter up now," said Captain Maxwell, 'in 
view of the Russian change of attitude and 
their anxiety to make gestures towards the 
west, I believe there is a good chance of 
something coming of it." 

The second Russian concession was an 
agreement to buy "substantially larger num- 
bers" of British books, particularly in the 
fields of science, technology, and medicine, 
and to lower, or perhaps to remove, the 
obstacles that have checked the flow of 
Russian technical periodicals to the west.

ABQ AND PURPOSE Or TH?. IW5T1TUTC 

I To establish a Translation Panel of competent and highly qualified translators 
f rom Russian and other Slavonic lanj^uages into English; and to make available 
the services of the Institute and its Translation Panel to scientists, learned 
societies, government agencies and industry throughout the world on a non-profit 
making basis. The Institute shall charge its customers for these services on a 
co-operative cost-sharing plan. 

II To encourage, co-ordinate and foster (by the holding of Symposia, for instance) 
the teaching of Russian at higher seats of learning; and to provide the teach- 
ing institutions with the necessary textbooks and tools of learning which will 
enable non-Russian speaking scientists to acqxilre quickly a working knowledge 
of Russian sufficient for them to read Russian scientific literature. 

Ill To sponsor and foster research into the organization of scientific information, 
mechanical systems for storing and retrieving infonaation, and mechanical trans- 
lation. 

IV To assist and advise learned societies and professional bodies on their publica- 
tion problems with a view to reducing the cost of printing and distribution of 
their publications in the interests of the wider and more efficient dissemination 
of scientific infonaation. 

V To translate and disseminate such of the scientific, technical and medical 

literature printed in Russian and other Slavonic languages, which, in the opinion 
of competent scientific advisors, w^l be of definite benefit and value to scien- 
tists not speaking these languages. 

VI To establish and publish, with the assistance of the appropriate scientific 

institutions in the U.S.S.R., a series of monographs in the English language re- 
viewing progress in broad areas of Soviet scientific activity. 

VII A. To publish a journal devoted to reporting translation work done anywhere in 

the world from Russian and other Slavonic languages into English in the fields 
of science, technology and medicine in order to prevent duplication. 

B. To serve as a forum in whichSoviet and non-Russian speaking sciontists will be 
able, to discuss problems of cesamon concern — both scientific and administrative 

C, To be a place where people engaged in the teaching of Russian to non-Russian 
speaking scientists can report their experiences and exchange information which 
will be of assistance to persons worklng^in this field. 

VIII To compile and publish specialized dictionaries from and into Russian amJ the 
principal Slavonic languages for subjects where such dictionaries are lacking.
